Leslye Luella (Penny) Webb Sagers left the loving arms of her eternal companion late in the evening on February 16, 2014 to return to the arms of her loving Heavenly Father. Oh how joyous must be the reunion between our beautiful, vibrant Leslye and those she dearly loved who went home before her. Our sweet wife, mother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend will be watching over us until the time of our joyous reunion. She takes with her a portion of each of our hearts which will only be whole again when we will be with her.
Leslye was born in Nampa, ID on September 17, 1943 to Ed and Glyda Johnson Webb. She grew up in Melba, ID where her father ran the local drugstore. Her love and talent for music and piano led her to attend Boise State University and then Brigham Young University. While attending BYU, she met the man of her dreams, Sidney M. Sagers. Sid and Leslye were sealed for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake temple on March 19, 1965 and began their life adventure. Sid and Leslye built a wonderful life centered on one of the things she loved most, children. The couple had eight children and lived in many exciting places around the world including, Argentina, Brazil and Australia.
Leslye was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where she served faithfully whenever and wherever she was asked. She and Sid served an LDS mission in Lethbridge, Alberta Canada where they made many wonderful friends and touched the lives of everyone with whom they came in contact.
At an early age, Leslye became an accomplished pianist. She used her marvelous gift to provide inspiration and to uplift many. Her talent was sought after and enjoyed by so many including vocalists, church services and choirs. She also played with the Mussettes. She particularly loved sharing her musical talents with the children.
She loved to learn and discover new hobbies. She always wanted to find ways and things that would brighten others' lives and express her love for them. In recent years, she loved quilting and embroidering and had a strong desire to make beautiful handwork she could share with her children and grandchildren. She also loved all the beautiful things in God's world, including flowers and animals.
Throughout her life she was focused on what mattered the most to her, namely her Savior, her dear husband, her children, her family and her friends. She will be missed beyond how words can express.
Surviving Leslye are her husband, Sidney (Sid) Sagers; children: Paula Gephart (Brian), Lisa Krapohl (Don), Cheryl Morris (Sonny), Julie Larsen (Monte), Debra Sherwood (James), Kimberly Peterson (Preston), Michael Sagers (Denise); 19 grandchildren; sister Julia Frost, brothers Richard Webb (Leona) and Ted Webb (Betty). She was preceded in death by a daughter Allison Olson (Chris) and parents Ed and Glyda Webb.
